Apple environmental report reveals HomePod uses surprisingly little power

Apple has published an environmental report for its new HomePod speaker, revealing that the unit “consumes less power than an average LED household light bulb during music playback,” coming in at 8.74 watts when connected to a standard 115-volt North American power outlet. Citing the use of power-efficient components and intelligent software, the report also notes that HomePod “outperforms the stringent requirements of the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Audio/Video Version 3.0, consuming 50 percent less than the allowable energy for low power mode,” or 1.71 watts, which the report explains is “entered automatically after 8 minutes of inactivity.” [via MacRumors]
